12*: -June 6, I976_ Otherwise Charleston, /,'«: Virginia Mobility Cons Restless Generation By Tom I went to Jamestown, N. D., to see an aged man. His name was Stern. He was in his 80s. He'd been there since coming from Germany as a teenager. He'd worked hard and well, earned his own clothing store. Had one in Fargo, too. and some other place. But he was content in Jamestown. It's a small town, and neat. It's off 1-94 Fesperman enough to save its personality, to keep its own pace. Snow flies, people there know it will. The town is on the plain, so you can look out and see next week coming. Summers she can get blowy and dusty. Poets call it harsh, but what do poets know? Stern walked his mile to work, at zero even, or when an angry cloud sailed up in June's heat. Lease or Rent the new Ford Car or Truck you need. Parties, hauling, business, sudden emergencies, short or long term. Whatever it is, we'll give you extra transportation flexibility with a new Ford Rent-A-Car or Truck. Selection is great-- with a variety of models in both cars and trucks. You can rent or lease a Ford car or truck in minutes -- and you're off and away with a new driving Ireedom! JUST LIKE HERTZ and AVIS, but at lower rates. You can deal with a local business and get better service and SAVE MONEY! PATRICK STREET PLAZA FORD PHONE 344-1601 RENT-A-CAR: RENT-A-TRUCK anr j LEASING Fesperman What I remember about Stern is this. He couldn't understand why a man wouldn't want to live there. "They go off to Florida or California," he said. "Why do they do this? This is a good place." I thought of him last week, reading my mail. A woman told me she and her husband moved in '62. to the North Carolina hills, to a lovely town. * * * YET THINGS had changed. The bloom was gone. Could I tell her about Arizona? Maybe that was the place. A M r s . Greensteen wrote. They were from Oregon. Then they retired and moved to Florida, warm and bright. Florida was somebody else's dish, not hers. There was something about the Northwest, she said. Alice Richmond in Colorado wrote. She didn't have a thing against it. But her letter was about how fine it is in New Hampshire, how delightful. Our neighbors, the Williamses, lived in San Francisco. They moved to the South Coast. Esther talks about missing 'Frisco, fog and all.' Aw, no, writes a pal in Modesto. 'Frisco is finished.' We met a couple in Louisiana. He'd dreamed of fishing. She suffered her own dreams quietly, letting him fish. Her dreams were all set in Indiana. This is not trivial stuff. We've raised a new Restless Generation, conned by its own mobility. Not the kids, who've always roamed for fun. It's the elders, seeking a deeper comfort, still not sure. Maybe Stern was right. Who's to say North Dakota is not the place? L 169 SUMMERS ST.
